Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: Bob & Jan Grimes
Why the Owner Chose Bandera: We purchased our 11 acres in 2000, and completed the Guesthouse in 2002. We used the Guesthouse as a 'get-a-way' for the next seven years. During that time, extensive clearing was done on the property. Our long term intent had always been to use the Guesthouse as a vacation rental after we retired, and moved permanently to Bandera. We completed construction of our main house, and made the permanent move from Dallas, in August 2009. Since that time, we have greatly enjoyed sharing our Guesthouse, and the Bandera area with our guests. Bandera is a unique community, adhering to its cowboy culture and history of good country music.
